CHILDREN’S FOLK FESTIVAL
A thousand puppets, a hundred storytellers, a couple of mimes, clowns and jugglers and a fire eater can assemble in three states to the delight of all children and parents. Possibly Kentucky in June, Oklahoma in July and Utah in August can host a Children’s Folk Festival. Perhaps other states would like this celebration of child-ren’s happy concerns.
We can bring children and parents from all over to enjoy the fest, a trip to a local lake and a tent city for campers. Local children can rehearse to be in a children’s proces-sion on Friday evenings like they do in Germany’s Bav-aria’s Children ‘s Festival.
We have puppet contests in many states. Glen Echo in our nation’s capitol hosts storytellers from all around.
Mimes and jugglers come from Central Park in New York and circuses. College students love to do summer stock. “Let’s go to the Child-ren’s Folk Festival instead of Disneyland” this year can be the statement hailed by parents!
